Marseille midfielder Remy Cabella has said he does not regret joining Newcastle, despite an awful season in the Premier League, speaking on The Ligue 1 Show on beIN Sports, as quoted on ligue1.com.

The 26-year-old joined Newcastle in 2014 but failed to make any impact, spending the following season on loan at Marseille before making the move permanent in the summer. The physicality of the Premier League were too much for Cabella, but the Frenchman stands by his decision to move to England.

"I have no regrets, even if there were some low points," Cabella told The Ligue 1 Show.

"English football is not easy, it's not for everyone."

Cabella excited a lot of Newcastle fans when he arrived in the summer of 2014, and he appeared as though he was going to fill the void left by Hatem Ben Arfa with his flash skills and ability to glide past players effortlessly.

However, his time in black and white soon turned sour, with Cabella unable to adapt to the physical style of the English game, constantly getting bullied out of games and eventually finding himself on the bench.

The France international scored just one goal for Newcastle, and left the club on loan a year later, being replaced by another Frenchman in Florian Thauvin, who is ironically a teammate of Cabella at Marseille, after his move to Tyneside flopped as well.

Newcastle fans will not have a lot of great memories from Cabella's time at the club, other than his excessive amount of step-overs and moderately amusing social media posts.
